☀☀☀ Kanvas is a social livestreaming app that combines elements of Snapchat’s filters and artwork with Periscope’s social streaming features and design. During a live stream, a user can add gifs, draw shapes and add text, all in real time. Other users comment in the stream’s discussion board. The graphic tools spark creativity. This app, however, doesn’t come close to the audience size of streaming services such as Facebook Live and Periscope. Kanvas is a useful app for journalists who use the “live” feature on social media platforms and want to add an artistic edge to their coverage. — Scotty Bara
